Snowflake was pulled from a shelter by A Chance for Champ. She needed to be spayed and treated for heartworms. We sponsored these needed services so she could live a full life.
Ozzy was surrendered to a shelter by his owner because he was old and lame. Local rescue group, A Chance for Champ, saw Ozzy’s potential and thought he deserved to live out his life, so they pulled him into rescue and whisked him off to their vet for evaluation. Ozzy needed his ACL repaired to the tune of nearly $600. We paid the balance they weren’t able to cover, which was $288.
Sassy, Sweetie, and Buddy were owner surrenders from a family in East Tennessee to A Chance for Champ rescue. They needed vaccines and spay/neuter, which we sponsored. All puppies will be adopted into loving homes very soon.
Queen was in foster care for a shelter in Georgia. The foster knew something wasn’t right with her, but she had been checked out and was told that Queen was fine. Turns out she was very pregnant and in labor. Queen started having puppies, and when one got stuck in the birth canal the foster had to act quick, so she called on someone she knew in Tennessee who ran a rescue. Michelle with A Chance for Champ made a quick trip to pick up Queen and get her to the vet in Tennessee. One puppy was stuck in the birth canal and did not make it, even at attempts to deliver her via a cesarean section. We were able to sponsor the vet bill, and thankfully mama and remaining puppies are doing OK.
A Chance for Champ pulled Falcon into their rescue program from the Anderson County Animal Shelter when he was diagnosed with heart worms. He would have been euthanized without their assistance. We were happy to pay the Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley’s medical clinic for his treatment, and he is recovering in foster care.
Milo was surrendered by his owner to A Chance for Champ. He was sick and in need of emergency care. That’s when we were called on to help. Milo has been diagnosed with parvovirus, and he is fighting for his life. A simple vaccine could have prevented this. We contributed $300 to the mounting charges. If Milo makes it, he will be put up for adoption buy the rescue group.
Ammo was pulled from a shelter by A Chance for Champ. He started to show serious viral symptoms and quickly became dehydrated. Emergency care was required to save his life. We contributed $300 to the bill.
Ginger found herself at a high kill shelter in Georgia. It was suspected that she was pregnant. Local rescue group, A Chance for Champ, got wind that Ginger would be euthanized quickly if she was not pulled into rescue, so they took her in. Ginger was showing pregnancy distress, and her temperature dropped for three days in a row, so the vet ordered a cesarean. The rescue group reached out to us for sponsorship to save Ginger’s life as well as the life within her. She had one pup. Both are doing well. Happy life, precious ones!
Nellie was pulled from the Anderson County Animal Shelter by the rescue group, A Chance for Champ. They asked us to sponsor her basic vetting: spay surgery, back dewclaw removal, vaccines, dewormer, and first flea/heartworm prevention. As soon as she gets her boosters, she’ll be ready for adoption!
Red was given to a family member by a breeder who no longer wanted him. The family member didn’t either, so Red was lucky enough to be taken in by A Chance for Champ, one of our newly sponsored rescue organizations who rescues dogs, rehabilitates them as needed, provides training, and adopts to wonderful families. Red had a luxating patella, otherwise known as a dislocated kneecap. We kicked in $300 to the $600+ surgery to Pellissippi Veterinary Hospital so Red can have the life he deserves.
